2021 Fitzroy MS Mega Swim

the wash up - Monday 1st March

I am still getting people asking if they can donate.
I thank them for their enthusiasm but ask them to save their fundraising momentum for the 2022 Hammerhead Megaswim effort.

Special thanks and praise from the 2021 Hammerhead team must go to:
*Tori Swedosh and her son Finn and daughter Jazzy - LOTS of laps and always a smile on their faces. Amazing fundraising - thank you.
*Sue Scully - graveyard shift. Super Sue, thanks for your fundraising effort and brilliant support!
*Bronwyn Moline, James Stephenson and friends - second year of support, fundraising, friendship. Love you guys  and loved catching up with Rob and Jen x 
*Sharon Lanyon - fundraising champion.
Sharon, Darren, Ash & Scotty - thanks for putting your hands up for the midnight-3am shift!!!

Maria(Hutch) Hutchings , Gary Korfage, Fran Mullins,Jen Crouch, you were awesome - 

See you all in 2022!!

 

Today's the day

From 6pm today the Hammerheads will embark on their 24-hour Megaswim odyssey. Contact Carolyn or Heather if you need clarification of your swim times and we look forward to seeing you poolside. Please arrive about 30 minutes before your swim to allow time to set up, etc. It's going to be cool overnight so dress accordingly. The Rotary Club volunteers will make coffees overnight and banana pancakes in the morning. We're looking forward to seeing everybody - go Hammerheads! xxx

covid hiccup

All on track for 26/7Feb Megaswim despite a lockdown til 18Feb.
This was always a risk but lucky for us - full steam ahead with masks on between swims I guess :)
A bit of a hiccup in training for a few days.


2wks to go

It has been encouraging and uplifting feeling the support coming in from friends. Carolyn and I had a 9 am swim today and the sun shining was glorious. New goggles ready for the Megaswim - now to get some new pink caps as last years are looking crappy.

2021 24Hr MS Megaswim

It's time to get on board for the 2021 MS Megaswim.
Last year, the Hammerheads were born and our team had a rip-roaring time swimming all through the night in the name of fundraising for MS.
Each swimmer must register for the event then raise sponsorship dollars to help the MS cause.
Wish us luck and check out our donation page.



I'M TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!

Aside from looking forward to joining others in the fun and atmosphere on the day, I’m taking part to raise funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition and average age of diagnosis is 30 . It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.

For instance, can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), you physically can’t get out of bed, can’t walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?

All of a sudden your world has changed.

By being part of this event, and because of your generous sponsorship, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS Support Services. Services such as MS Peer Support, connecting people who are newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the MS Employment Support program keeping Aussies living with multiple sclerosis in the work force.

Thank you again for your support.
